CKSN Chatham-Kent January Female Athlete of the Month: Burke Bechard
Each month, CKSN.ca will name a female and male athlete of the month.
Bechard is the leading scorer for the OUA’s University of Guelph Gryphons women’s basketball team.
In January, Bechard had a pair of standout performances notching 20-points and 15-rebounds on January 11 in a win over Waterloo. She then scored a season high 22-points on January 19 in a win over Lakehead.
Bechard, a Dover Centre product, averaged 13-points, 6.7-rebounds, and 4.1-assists in the month of January, and also earned University of Guelph Female Athlete of the Week honours mid-month.
Her CKSN Athlete of the Month honours, will earn Bechard a spot in the voting to be named the 2020 CKSN Female Athlete of the Year.
Congratulations Burke, from CKSN.
Honourable Mention: Bridget Carleton, Jessie McPherson, Emma Negri, Logan Kucera.
